A New Life in Two Months
Operation: 50 Beds is Restoring Hope and Renewing Lives
(PAINESVILLE, OH) – When Roserese Williams arrived at 25 Freedom Road in February, she didn’t know what to do.
Evicted from her home with her three teenaged children, Williams said by the time she reached
Families Moving Forward, she felt despair.
“I am bringing my kids into a shelter,” she recalled thinking, noting that even during the stay,

James A. Garfield Historical Site, a national treasure in our own backyard

"I have lived in the area since February 2012 and have driven down Mentor Avenue many times
without really considering the majestic house that sits on the large lot at 8095 Mentor Ave. This is surprising because deep down I am a history buff; I have a picture of my 1 year old son at Gen Patton's grave and I once took my pregnant wife on a tour of the Verdun battlefield in France - that was not a good idea.

SPECIAL TO THE SENTINEL
(EUCLID, OH) - At Noble Academy-Cleveland, a K-8 charter school in Euclid, new ideas and innovation are key components of our curriculum and school culture. When I arrived at the school for the 2015-16 school year, fresh from an 8-year stint of teaching in Phoenix, Arizona, I saw a chance to develop a new program at the school, that would deliver a positive
outcome, not only for the school, but the surrounding community as well. Now that the program has taken off and is very successful, I
wanted to share our success with the local community and urge others to follow suit.
While teaching out west, my school was lucky enough to have a paper recycling program, equipped with classroom bins, as well as a paper recycling dumpster. Recycling was a foreign concept to many of our students, so getting the program off the ground was a difficult thing to achieve. After a few months of piloting the program and teaching about the importance of recycling, the program became very successful. Students were very excited to be a part of the program, which involved weekly weighing and emptying of classroom recycling bins (which at the time were just empty copy paper boxes) and tracking each classroom’s total weight. It was very neat to see the children, sometimes as young as Kindergarten, get excited about something as important and beneficial as recycling. Click here for the whole story
